On The Subject of Jewelry


 The following conversation from an interview here: http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2015/04/iris-apfel-interview?mbid=nl_043015_Daily&CNDID=29549888&spMailingID=7707866&spUserID=OTU0OTAyNjQxNDAS1&spJobID=672507785&spReportId=NjcyNTA3Nzg1S0

Are there any items in your jewelry collection that are too precious or valuable to wear?

"Of course, but I have a very odd collection: it goes from the sublime to the ridiculous. I have some very important, valuable things, and I have some junk, and I like to mix them all together. I’m constantly buying jewelry—I love it, I love it, I love it! I mean, I could be an octopus and have ten heads and I couldn’t wear it all."- Iris Apfel
